A Stubborn Blindness; Learning Under Jesus

Note: This series is written as a first-person narrative in order to present Jesus in the context he walked with the unknown disciple that narrates presenting my thoughts and sparking more thoughts with his questions. Enjoy!

We arrived at Bethsaida, sometimes called Julius, and some people brought a blind man to Jesus. He walked out clutching one of their arms and they begged Jesus to touch him. He took the blind man by the hand and led him outside the village.

We followed along. Then he spat on the man’s eyes and puts his hands on him, Jesus asks, “Do you see anything?

Wiping his eyes, the man looks up and said, “I see people; they look like trees walking around.”

It didn’t work all the way, I thought. That’s weird…I wonder why? I’ve seen him stop a storm with three words. 

Once more Jesus put his hands on the man’s eyes. Then his eyes were opened, his sight was restored, and he saw everything clearly. Jesus sent him home, saying, “Don’t even go into the village.

Mark 8:22-26
